the inevitable...

Well with three boys, I knew trips to the ER would be inevitable.
Today Landon was hit with a baseball.
Right in the nose.
So, off we headed to InstaCare, (of course it was about 5 pm)
Landon was so nervous! He didn't want to go!
It was swollen and didn't look quite right.
(he wouldn't let me take a picture!)
He ended up with a tiny nondisplaced fracture (crack)
and it should heal on its own.
We are lucky.
BUT...doc cautioned him about rubbing or picking his nose!
If it gets bumped or hit again, it will surely break!
For good measure, I'm taking the x-ray to an ENT ASAP!!
A mom has to protect a handsome face.

It hurts to get a ball in the nose...poor guy. Hope he can keep his hands away from it to give it time to heal properly. And YES, a mother has to protect her childrens' beautiful/handsome faces.

That makes me sad. Poor kiddo.
Even is he did have a broken nose, that kids would still be a cuteheart.
Hope he's feelin' better.

What a handsome guy! Ever since I was little, my number one fear was being hit in the nose by a ball. I could just imagine the pain exploding all over my face! I'm so sorry to hear that this happened to your sweet Landon.
